Thank you immensely for this allegory. I have had a struggle wanting the end table now. But I had not idea how to be patient and enjoy the process. This summer I built a deck all by myself. I mean right from the planning stage to the actual cutting and assembling and putting the finishing touches on it. I had never though of my goal to recreate and sculpt my body as a process such as this I understand so much more. If I can build a deck I can do this.
Mike's articles are always great; but this is article on goals taught me more than all the things I have read before - which have been numerous. What a great way to get the points across. This goes to the top of my "favorites" list. In fact, I am going to print it and put it where I can refer to it often - along with my own goal list.
What a clever analogy! I wonder if someone really made that coffee table or just used it for an example, however, it was perfect! I like to cross-stitch and it certainly fits the model. Wonderful article!
I enjoyed this article. I love how detailed it is.
